threat to millions of americans and he's got that right. take a look under mr. obama. the income gap, four times faster has expanded four times faster than it did under president george bush. under president obama, 6.7 americans in the millions have fallen into poverty. the same one that had the audacity to stand before the cameras and speak as though he had absolutely been uninvolvee and policies for the past five years. it's an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. 9 million people under president obama. under president obama, 21.6 americans are underemployed or unemployed and giving up looking for work. under president obama, the average duration has nearly doubled to more than 36 weeks and today, president obama joined the nearly 70% of voters who say that the united states is now headed in the wrong direction. so often it seems that you can't make this stuff up. joining us now is a fox news contributor, monica crowley and david webb an

whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing media. the post surfaced again and again all over conservative press and of course landed distraught father on fox news. even the house speaker john boehner climbed on board the obama hates toddlers bandwagon, after saying he learned obama wouldn't cover his baby. now, hearing this story you may ask yourself the question any journalist writing the story or producer doing a segment about it, or any person with just basic common sense would be asking, could it possibly be the case that obama was denying coverage to a toddler? well, the answer, that very good question is no, of course not. of course not, that is not true. a spokesp

-pays and deductibles triple under obama care. i'm thrilled to death, as you can tell. >> so domenico, we know everyone covered it when he finally signed up for health care without delay on the website. that was before the fix. but what do we know regarding his premiums and what he said today. >> that's about the extent of it, tamron. we know earlier he had tried to sign up, and they made a little bit of a show of it where the site had frozen up. this is part of the republican effort to use individual stories. now the speaker is using himself to say that in some cases, for some people, their premiums are going to go up. conversely, we're seeing the president come at this from the other angle and talk about people with pre-existing conditions and people who do benefit from the law. you know, so we have these two sides going at each other, not necessarily talking about how bad the website is anymore, obviously. because he was able to get through. now they're back to sort of the older talking points that we'd been hearing in the lead-up to this. >> regarding numbers and more information, we didn't get tha

insurance premiums are going to double. my co-pays and tripled under obama care. you can tell i am thrilled to tell. >> you can hear the sarcam from john boehner. and broader point there, is that members of congress and congressional staffers giving up more genous plans in favor of the exchanges and senator harry reid exempted some, not all but the senate staffers from going into the exchange. that led to charges of hypocrisy is supposed to be a booster of the law. >> we are on that. not like mcconnell or boehner or pelosi. how will this be to selling young americans to buying into it? >> that is a big issue. mechanical issues to get the website working. but they have to get young healthy people to seen up. you force the older sicker people in. and you hear john boehner as a older gentlemen he has to pay more from the premiums, you need the younger healthier people to make it work. >> the math doesn't work without it either. >> new reports that some republican law makers are shifting obama care from repealing to repairing. it other republicans don't like that idea. ellison barber. great to

and was advised, no, they don't allow children to be on family plans under 2 years of able. >> obama care doesn't cover babies? is that true or false? false. it turns out the reason this particular dad did not get coverage for his baby is he forgot to list the baby when he signed up for insurance. quoting capitol, new york, the mixup appears to be routed in the dad's application, which originally listed three of his children when he has four. when the clerical error was discovered, it was fixed, except by john boehner, who is still pedaling the story as true. i'm not sure i expect fox news to correct the story, but don't you expect the speaker of the house to? next up, true or false -- that was amazing. sorry. the desk like ate it. true or false, president obama is closing the u.s. embassy at the vatican? from the conservative washington times newspaper, obama's call to close vatican embassy is slap in the face to roman catholics. they say obama insults catholics in vatican embassy shutdown. jeb bush said hopefully it's not retribution for catholics opposing health care. they called it just the

in the economy under president obama. it was a clear indication the president himself believes that his stewardship has been a failure. there's no doubt that under president obama our country has fallen to what i will call a new normal, high employment, stagnant wages. on president is more focused increasing reliance on government programs than pro- growth policies that will create more american jobs and benefit american wages. republicans continue to focus on strengthening the economy for middle class families. that is why we passed nearly 150 bills in this congress, and many of them will help our economy. they are sitting in the senate. sitting in thel senate. senate democrats and the president continue to stand in the way of america's rarities. the president pot health care law -- the president's health aw continues to wreak havoc. people are losing the dock there's -- the doctors that they have continually relied on. to make matters worse, taxpayers could be on the hook for millions of dollars of fraud. this week the white house announced it will not even whetherto verify individual

for the nation under romney care in massachusetts. after a terrible first few weeks on the federal healthcare.gov website, the obama administration now says the site is working for most people most of the time, which is what they were hoping for by december 1. if the health care website is, in fact, working that much more smoothly, that should smooth the way for more people to get enrolled across the country. in the first nine weeks, in general, states running their own exchanges, kentucky included, they have done better than states that are not running their own exchanges and letting the federal government do it. but as the federal system works these kinks out, the numbers are going to keep going up. they're going to keep going up and up, even in places like mississippi, even in places like mississippi, which has done everything it can to ruin its own citizens' chances of getting health insurance, even to the point of unplugging what they had, which was working, which they designed for themselves. even in a state like mississippi, where the governor has been doing everything he can in his po

about obama, about -- and also just about kind of the nature of the country. the idea this is a christian nation under siege. and now people believe it. >> that's bottom line here. it seems to me our producers were talking today, it's not just who wins these primaries. and they'll end up republican. the danger is the republican you get in the senate will be an out right obstructionist. an incumbent has to go so far right that he'll be saying no to everything obama or anybody else offers for the next years. will come in as an absolute obstructionist. what does that do to our country when you have states that have marked themselves off for obstructionism? >> i mean, i think we're in a lot of trouble. in part because these aren't going to be like todd akins. a lot of cases, whoever wins the primary is going to win the election. and so this is just kind of a warning to all republicans that you can't compromise at all. that you can't -- i mean, one of the chris mcdaniel's points against thad cochran is he voted to end the shutdown. so don't vote to end the shutdown. >> i wa

, judge us on what we've tried to repeal. the dozens of votes to repeal obama care, jobs bills, things are languishing, not only majority of americans want, majority of voters want. look, if they are going to refashion themselves, they need a new leader latino lesbian under 25. but there aren't any republican party and that's the problem. >> you've got to ask yourself, too, i'm trying to think of a sports metaphor, like having a case of the chickenpox that mask your sprained ankle. the affordable care act provided the smoke screen so they don't have to deal with the instructial problems within the party. republicans made zero progress reaching out to any demographic groups, women, young people, latino, autopsy, the famous rans priebus document they have to stay alive for that great tea party rally in the sky. >> you're seeing a conflict between the fact the party wants durable majorities and beholden to shrinking monochromatic base. i think it would be a real conservative to replace boehner at some point, could wake up to the fact not about insufficient conservatism. only thing they ag
